If you haven’t had a chance to follow Ed Cyzewski’s Women in Ministry Series, it is wonderful. Each week a well-established female author, or a woman serving in the mission field, or in the shadows of her church writes about her experience as a woman in ministry.

You can sign up for the weekly feeds through his blog Inamirrordimly.

If you don’t have time to follow yet another blog, at least read this beautiful story.

Written by Rachel Shedd Streitzel, about taking care of children and mothers in Equador. It’s a tear-jerker.
